The first one I attempted, I used the H hook using Red Heart Super Saver in a purple/blue varigated yarn but it turned out to be way too small. I'm glad I didn't give up, I decided to try again. This time I used the same type of yarn but in a red/burgandy/pink color. I also used a larger size hook, size "K". A total of 4 skeins.
I didn't make any real modifications to this sweater. The sweater fit perfect on top. I left out the flared sleeve ends and it was still too long (probably because my gage was a little off). Overall, the instructions were easy to follow.
I have to say that I am surprised by how much I like this sweater! I like it a lot better than I thought I would. It actually turned into one of my favorites! My other favorite is the Pale Shade of White Car Coat.
Here are photos of my new sweater:
I love this top so here's my blissful top revisted....
